Knitting in Public Day
Saturday June 10, 2017
10:00 AM until 5:00 PM
Drop in anytime through out the day and bring a project you are working on, pick up a pattern for charity knitting or just pick up a needle and some yarn that will be provided and see what this craze is all about.
The world has knitter Danielle Landes to thank for World Wide Knit in Public Day (W.W.K.I.P.D) – and to say that the world’s knitters have turned out in their droves to support her quest to show that knitting is not just for grannies is something of an understatement. Each event – known as a KIP and brandishing the slogan ‘Better Living Through Stitching Together’ – is ran by local groups and despite its reputation as a single day often takes the form of a week long celebration of both knitting and alternative fibre art forms. The popularity of these KIPs continues to grow, with groups often choosing a theme for their particular event. Popular themes include knitting for hospitals, community art projects, environmental concerns, and premature babies – all of which are worthy causes to benefit from those with a love of yarn.
